10:55, — Politics
On 24 February a journalist Valer Kalinouski passed a documentary book ‘Bialatski’s Case’ to Stockholm’s International Library.
The book tells about the life of the human rights activist and writer Ales Bialatski and his unjust trial that sentenced him to four and a half years of imprisonment at Babrujsk penal colony, Radio Racyja reports.
At Stockholm’s International Library there are books in many languages of the world, including Belarusian.
We would remind that Ales Bialatski is serving imprisonment at the penal colony number 2 in Babrujsk by court’s verdict. On 24 November 2011 court found him guilty of concealing incomes in especially large amounts and sentenced him to four and a half years in high security penal colony and confiscation of assets. The ground for Bialatski’s criminal persecution was that he had banking accounts in Lithuania and Poland. The court did not take into account that the money was used for human rights activities.
